Times are tough and consumers are understandably being very careful with their spending. Custom decorating isn’t cheap, but Robert Allen has just introduced some very classy looking prints that I can sell for a low price, without giving up the chic look that I insist on bringing to my projects.
The Robert Allen @Home Collection, has always provided reliably inexpensive prints, but NOT always forward looking styling. I think these new prints, in their patterns, styling, coloring and quality stand up beautifully among much higher priced prints from exclusive print houses.
Shades of grey plus hot pink in the above print (Waldemere-dove) give it a very current look and set it apart from other prints in its price category. The base fabric is a smooth full bodied cotton. It retails for $29.90 a yard! Hey for that price, let’s upholster the walls!

Here are some co-ordinates I found to have fun with, plenty for a whole room. All are from Robert Allen. The pink and grey stripe is from the @Home Collection (Kukula-dove) also $29.90 a yard.
Below are some furniture selections, to show how I envision using these pretty, modern prints and co-ordinates.

The brilliant, joyful coloring used in this new print (Les Fauves-grasslands) from the @Home collection, gives this traditional pattern a fresh and up-to-date look. The highly saturated cheerful spring palette is just the right medicine for tough times. The pricing at $39.90 a yard doesn’t hurt either! The base fabric is a wonderful full bodied linen blend that absolutely belies the pricing.

The green and white geometric (Cat’s Cradle-grass) in the grouping above is also from the @Home Collection. It’s printed on the same wonderful linen blend, and comes in 8 smashing colors. It retails for $39.90. This particular print , can take the lead to create a modern look, or be combined with the floral as part of an updated traditional setting. All of the fabrics above are from Robert Allen.
I’d like to see these new patterns used on some handsome, time honored traditional furnishings. The bright upbeat take on the prints, would give the classic furniture styling a good shaking up. Don’t you think?

In this new collection, Robert Allen shows that with great styling you can get a beautiful, chic and current look, at the right price.
